(Re-)Introducing our Keynote Speaker
We are thrilled to announce that our keynote speaker for this landmark conference will be Dr Merja Makinen.
Regular delegates will know Merja from her excellent papers at the first three conferences, including a stunning keynote presentation on Agatha Christie and Virginia Woolf in Agatha Christie: Crime, Culture, Celebrity. This paper was published to glowing reviews in The Ageless Agatha Christie (McFarland, 2016).
Merja Makinen has been at the forefront of Agatha Christie studies since she published Agatha Christie: Investigating Femininity in 2001. She has authored several important monographs and articles on women's literature, including new readings of Christie, Angela Carter, and Jeanette Winterson. Until her retirement in 2016, she was an associate professor at Middlesex University.
Agatha Christie: A Re-Appraisal is going to be a wonderful two-day conference. If you'd like to present a paper, we'd love to hear from you.
